This is in addition to the Bonus Funds that are awarded through your NTGD online giving.

And all of that happened in just four hours. Let’s see how much more we can raise this year! Join us for this exciting and rewarding event, and support local nonprofit organizations!
What is North Texas Giving Day?
In case you’re not “in the know” – from the Communities Foundation of Texas’ official #NTXGivingDay website:
Communities Foundation of Texas’ North Texas Giving Day is an 18-hour online giving event designed to empower every person to give back to their community by supporting local nonprofits and causes they care about in one easy-to-use platform.
The event helps build awareness and support for nonprofits like nothing else. In 2017, $39 million was raised through more than 137,000 gifts benefiting 2,723 local nonprofits, bringing the nine year total to $195 million for our community. North Texas Giving Day is the largest community-wide giving event in the nation.
In ten years, this online event has transformed from an idea to help raise awareness of nonprofits, to a movement that has ignited a broad culture of community-wide giving. During North Texas Giving Day, everyone has the opportunity to be a philanthropist to build a stronger and more vibrant community.
Metropolitan Press has partnered with Communities Foundation of Texas for several years now, providing printing sponsorships for their kickoff materials, and working hard to make printing #NTXGivingDay materials for nonprofit organizations as simple and affordable as possible.
